Arrest made in Connors State College cattle theft case

A Connors State College student was arrested May 7 for allegedly stealing and selling 5 head of cattle from the school’s agriculture program.

Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) Special Rangers Bart Perrier and John Cummings arrested Artrell Mark Carmouche, 23, of Humble, Texas, after information surfaced that Carmouche allegedly took 5 stolen cows to a sale barn in Bristow, Okla., where they were sold for approximately $5,400.

Carmouche, who attended the Warner, Okla., college on a rodeo scholarship, was being held in the Muskogee County jail on a charge of larceny of domestic animals. Bond is set at $5,000.

“Connors State College has been great to work with during this investigation and steps have already been taken to prevent these types of crimes in the future,” said Perrier.
